Hugh Jackman Playing Scar In Lion King Remake

Hugh Jackman Playing Scar In Lion King Remake

In a minute or so of its live-action clip today, Disney showed off the first footage from their adaptation of The Lion King a full two years before it's scheduled to hit theaters.

If you thought The Jungle Book had some kind of magical realism going on, just wait until you see what's in store for The Lion King.

Hugh Jackman hinted at his involvement with Disney on Twitter yesterday.

And 16 and 17 I hit great shots into the green but I guess they weren't close enough so I still missed them. Because she is an amateur, Choi forfeits the $540,000 she would have won if she was a professional.

And what we saw was a wonder: animals of every kind traveling across the Serengeti to celebrate the arrival of their new would-be boy king, a scene that will be all too familiar to fans of the 1994 animated classic. The Wrap dug deep into the rumors, contacting Jackman's team where a representative of the actor shut down the claim without hesitation. This looks like another Disney blockbuster after huge successes of Jungle Book and The Beauty and the Beast.

Jackman certainly has the ferocity to play Scar, and will bring his many talents to the character.

The remake will feature Donald Glover as Simba, James Earl Jones reprising his role as Mufasa, Seth Rogen as Pumbaa, Billy Eichner as Timon, and John Oliver as Zazu. Unfortunately, for now it seems as if this claim doesn't hold water but fans still have hope for Jackman.

Despite silence on Jackman, there were major castings confirmed at the D23 expo this weekend, and they belong to fellow Disney movie Aladdin.

The Lion King, with or without Jackman, will debut on July 19, 2019.
